Host event, Bartercard Sail Paradise Regatta will crown the 2020 Hansa SKUD18 National Champion.

"The facilities at SYC and the Gold Coast weather conditions are perfect for this Class of event, having trained off the coasts shoreline for many State and National's Championships in previous years, myself and my fellow crewman Max Quan are extremely excited to represent SYC at the event," said the 2018 & 2019 Australian Para Sailing National Champion, Ross Manning. "The racing in the offshore waters off Surfers Paradise is second to none and it is wonderful of SYC to bring these Championships into their Premier Regatta Sail Paradise. We are anticipating an awesome fleet of the Skud18 Class and we know the Competition is going to be really tough with competitors travelling from as far away as Perth, Melbourne & Sydney".
